Wow, that convention feels like it just went by at lightning speed. I'm almost positive yesterday was Friday, not Saturday. But here we are with animeBoston all wrapped up and the post-con blues starting to set in. It was a pretty great convention all around. Not perfect, but definitely a great con. I ended up doing only two of the costumes I had planned because I decided that I was not as happy with my CCS costume as I wanted to be and, more than anything, I just really enjoyed being Daenerys.

So, a quick recap:

Friday was the day we debuted our zombie hunter Sailor Scouts! Man, that was fun. Unfortunately, the majority of the group wasn't able to make it until about six in the evening due to school, but it was still awesome walking around with Venus and Saturn (and of course the head of Uranus). Overall people were able to recognize that we were zombie fighting Sailor Scouts, not just battle worn Scouts. The decapitated head of Uranus may have helped. And when Mars arrived, she was a zombie and I know that definitely added to the general zombie theme. 

The head was a big hit. And by big hit, I mostly mean that everyone was really freaked out and thought it was especially tragic. Which means it was a success in my mind. 

We had a quick photoshoot at around seven or so. Did some group shots and then we each got some solo shots done! We all got a sneak peek at the photos and they are SO good! Like damn. I'm very excited to get those back when we do. It'll be a couple weeks though for editing and such, of course. But they will be well worth the wait. And my group has plans to do another photoshoot for this particular cosplay, but as a location shoot instead of a con shoot which will be very exciting and give us the chance to be even more gory! 

Once the shoot was done we were all pretty exhausted. We left the con around twelve I think, then once I got back to my place with my friends I finished up the final touches on Daeny. Unfortunately my purple contacts did not arrive on time, so I substituted blue ones.  

Saturday was a pretty fantastic day for Daenerys, though there were some technical issues that frustrated me; mainly the lace front on my wig was pulling back. I'd rushed out of the house without thinking about spirit gum because prior to styling my wig I hadn't needed it, and so I totally spaced. By the end of the night my wig was pretty much falling off my head. It did hold up all day at least and I'm pretty sure I want a new Daeny wig. Granted, I still love the wig I have, but I want to do more versions of her so another wig will be good for more hairstyles. 

I had a photo shoot Saturday night, but since the lighting wasn't super great we ended up only spending about thirty minutes on that and decided to do more shots in the morning today. The second photo shoot was phenomenal and I cannot wait to get those back--the first set as well, but that second set. I am so happy with how the costume turned out. While there are things I want to fix on it, it was overall a huge success! People had no trouble recognizing who I was despite it being an original design. Granted, having the dragon egg probably helped. XD 

Still, I would say overall the convention was a success. I miss my friends so much now, though. Being so busy with school, work, and cosplays I haven't had any time to see them, so the post con blues are kicking in pretty early. But I don't have lots of time for that. I'm vegging out tonight and then tomorrow it's time to work on my cosplay for PAX East and a huge wig commission! 

Well, that's about it! I hope everyone who went to aB had a fantastic time! Pictures will be coming shortly!

My name is Eeri. I'm originally from CA, which is where I started cosplaying, but now live on the east coast. I attend a lot of east coast conventions, but always make it back to CA for FanimeCon, where it all started for me.

Cosplay has become a huge part of my life, and has even led me on the path to school and a career as a professional costume designer. I will be starting at Massachusetts College of Art and Design this Fall, and in two years I will have my certificate in fashion design! It is so exciting, and I hope that I can continue to create costumes that everyone enjoys.

Thank you to everyone who favourites, watches, and supports me as a cosplayer! It truly means the world to me and I hope that I do not disappoint! :thumbsup:
